It's really hard to talk about Nicolas Cage and not to ask "what the hell is going on with this guyâs hair?" Somehow, whatever role his playing he manages to put his hair to the fore. It's almost like his hair has taken on a life of its own. Itâs as if I want to see movies with him simply based on what his hair is going to look like.I believe he wakes up in the morning, looks in the mirror and asks himself - does my hair look ridiculous enough? If the answer is yes, he goes straight to the movie set, and if the answer id no, he manically starts applying all sorts of hair products until he achieves the desired effect.
The year of 1986 was turning point in Nic's hair life. This is the year he probably lost most of his hair due to all that hair spray, and turned to using ridiculous wigs.
Now you see that the man is receding but it actually works out well because it makes the âpatheticâ look more believable in this film.
Again, his hair in this movie, looks like extension of the character he's playing. It makes hims more real and believable.
One short glance at this photo and you see how deeply unfortunate and miserable Nicolas Cage is, when his hair is average, human-like and simply boring.
There is an ancient theory that the length of Nicolas Cage's hair ties in with the quality of his performance. Here goes a short clip that may help prove or destroy this theory.
The 1997 is another turning point at Nic Cage's hair career. This is the year when the era of his ballistic andridiculous hairstyle begins.
This is one of his best hairs ever! He combines three winning elements - perm, bleach and probably a wig. Can it get any better than this?
This is the point when Cage hit the Tom Hanks wanna-be point of career. But somehow, those plugs or waves, or whatever the hell is going on there, don't really work for him.
I have to admit he looks excellent in this photo, and his hair looks really great, but it is probably some sort of wig or hair extension.
As years go by, his hair looks more and more ridiculous, I'm almost too afraid to go and see his next movie, because you never know what is the next look he'll chose for his hair. Still, the curiosity always wins! source
